    You know what, Edris sounds like a great idea a awesome idea actually.

    • Pablo Alberto Escalante

      A black batman ???? jajajajajajajjajaja

  • Sire Joe

    I dont care. Affleck has been a great Batman and I’d prefer to just see him stay on. I liked the last DC movie, but that studio is a bloody mess. Such a disappointment.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      The problem is that Affleck is, if the rumors are correct, wanting to get out of the role

      • xxjinzaxx

        Rumors of his intentions, aside. He’s got an addiction problem that may be getting in the way of his functionality. Something that could make WB cautious about going forward with plans that include Affleck.

    • Φίλη

      Affleck was an awful Batman and that’s why people stop paying to see these movies.

      • Sire Joe

        Totally disagree. I was ready to write him off as Batman when it was originally announced but he’s been the best Batman since Keaton. It’s going to be sad to see him go.

      • delta_one

        I’m going to disagree as well. Ben Affleck is the most Batman-looking Batman that has ever Batmanned. His Bruce Wayne is spot on and the Batman scenes in these movies have been closer to the comics than anything I’ve ever seen.

  • Maxi Iroh

    Matt Boomer, Leo, Gosling, James Marsden, Hemsworth #3??? 5 out 10 in this list is just a no go, the rest range from okay to great.

    I like the others though, specially Karl Urban, that is if he’s not in the Dredd Tv Series.

    • IDavid

      It could be interesting to let Hemsworth take a stab at it. Always fun to watch a newbie make it.

  • A. Hardikar

    James Marsden as Hal Jordan, Karl Urban as Hawkman. As far as Batman is concerned, I would love it if Ben continues. Otherwise Scott Adkins or Brant Daugherty.

    • Matias Gagliardone

      Nice ideas you got there

    • Farahh

  • Darthmanwe

    I’ll say this, with DC movies being in the shape they are in right now, the top 5 of that list wouldnt go anywhere near Batman, no matter how prestigious it is. They all just watched what happened to arguably one of their best in that role.

    Jon Bernthal from “The Punisher” would be a good choice for Batman in my opinion.

    • delta_one

      I definitely see the Batman in him, I just don’t see the Bruce Wayne in him.

  • IDavid

    John Ham, Karl Urban, Jake G or Ryan G would work it well.

  • I like this older Batman that we have now. So John Hamm for the continuity. And if Matt Reeves insists on using Jake Gyllenhaal for a standalone ‘elseworld’ trilogy of his own, so be it.

    • David

      If they use an older Batman they will run into the same problem some years from now. They will need a Dark Knight who will play the character for 10+ years.

  • Lara Croft

    Tyler Hoechilin looks like Bruce Wayne. I think he would be perfect if they are going for a video game Batman fresh look.

    • Austin Dickey

      Hoechlin makes a great Superman. I don’t know about Batman, but he would definitely be a great Nightwing

    It appears you know nothing about Batman or, Bruce Wayne, out of all the options, the only one who could possibly replace Affleck without making a mess of things would be Jon Hamm. And what in the world is Tyler & Hemsworth doing up there? Tell us what you were on when you came up with that list, we’d like some 😀

    Jon Hamm FTW

  • Must say this is actually a good list, compared to many others.

  • delta_one

    I’ve never hear of Matt Bomer but my goodness he does have a Bruce Wayne look.

  • October_1985

    What a pile of nosense

  • Stormtrooper

    Idris Elba? Seriously? So I suppose that would make it okay & perfectly acceptable for a character who’s always been black to be portayed by a white character all of a sudden?

  • Raimundo Alves Mendes Junior

    Porque não colocar Tom Welling como Batman ? ele seria otimo esta com 40 Anos e faria otimo o papel

    • xxjinzaxx

      Tem que ser alguém gostoso, não fofo. Welling é muito fofo.

  • adinda

  • Austin Dickey

    I know this is just me, but I would love for Chris O’Donnell to be Batman. Jim Caviezel and Michael Shanks would also be good

  • Yandi

    I would go for Josh Duhamel or Bradley Cooper. The face of Bruce Wayne, the figure, the voice, tall, experienced. I just thought that Ben Affleck time is over although he is fit to be Bruce Wayne, but he has lost his aura in the Justice League. Matt Reeves will make Batman Great Again.
